Dear Parents/Guardians of incoming 7th and 8th graders,
The Office of Pupil Transportation originally said that the new variance/exception forms would be available June 15. However, the 2017-2018 form is still listed. The school reached out to them and we were just notified that they will allow the old form to be use. We would still recommend to cross out 2017-2018 and put 2018-2019 on the upper right hand corner of the variance form.

Dear Parents/Guardians of incoming grade 7th and 8th students,
As explained in the attached letter HERE, a hard copy of which was sent home, yellow bus does not apply to grade 7 or 8 students. In order for a 7th or 8th grader to have yellow bus access, they need to complete a variance form (medical, hazard, etc..).
The Office of Pupil Transpiration said that the new 2018-2019 forms would be available on June 15, however, they are not posted yet. Please continue to check the OPT website (HERE) to see if OPT updated the form to ideally submit it at the end of June.
If the updated form is not posted, please submit it at the end of August.
